It's hard to beat a pile of loaded nachos when it comes to satisfying your appetite for a dose of Mexican food. Chips and cheese of course, but after that the sky's the limit when it comes to ingredients. Meat, tomatoes, onions, olives, corn, beans, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, and just about anything else you can imagine.

A survey by Zippia revealed each state's favorite dip for the celebrated tortilla chip. Salsa was Minnesota's top pick -- along with most of the country. Queso and guacamole both scored pretty high as well. (All three would be welcome on my nachos.)
